A fellow Benz owner thought my problem might be bad valve seals. I am not convinced since the car starts right up with very little smoke. Also, why would I have an external leak if the problem was leaking valve seals? I am planning on cleaning off the oil from under the car this weekend and seeing if I can spot the source of the leak. It is certainly possible that at highway speed I am losing oil down the tailpipe as well as elsewhere on the lower part of the engine. With the wife driving the car the last couple of days on short trips around the area, it does not appear to be losing more oil. I only have a couple of drops on the driveway and when checking the dip stick it is almost to the full line. Is it possible that the turbo might be leaking internally and sending oil out the tailpipe? Any other ideas?
